Just wanted to do a quick post to show off the new intro to Intergalactic Fishing that I’ve been working on. I got some feedback that the old intro kind of hits you with a wall of text right off the bat and I tend to agree. The introduction is in place to set up the main quest and give the player some reference as to who they play in the game and what is going on in the “game universe”. The old intro was just an introductory paragraph that explained all this, set over a stationary background of the initial lake the player starts in.
In order to make it more engaging and less “wall of text”, I decided to introduce the information in smaller pieces while roughly illustrating what the text says with zooming and panning across the lake as well as showing character portraits. You can see the new intro below.
It’s still a work in progress, but I like the direction it is headed. After the intro, you will head directly to the ULT License Test, which is essentially a tutorial that explains the basics of how to play and also provides some further information about the main quest and the game universe.
